The Summer Solstice celebration can be deemed the most Latvian holiday, marked according to pagan traditions. The festival bears the names Līgo and Jāņi.

People are invited to cheerfully celebrate Līgo! in all Latvia's regions and towns, by warming themselves around bonfires, playing games, and observing traditional rituals and other activities until sunrise. This night becomes memorable when celebrated together with Latvian folk groups and musicians any place in Latvia.

As Midsummer approaches, a wide-ranging programme of festivities will take place in the neighbourhoods of Riga and elsewhere in Latvia.
